RoSPA issues a call for papers

27 September 2012

RoSPA has issued a call for papers for its Road Safety Seminar 2013, which will examine the potential of new and emerging methods to deliver cost-effective road safety programmes, including social media, black box monitoring and public health initiatives.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at Conference Aston in Birmingham.

Potential speakers are invited to outline presentations on a range of new and emerging road safety themes. Suggested topics include the different uses of social media; the unintended consequences of using it and conducting and evaluating social media campaigns.

Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety, said, “With road fatalities showing their first increase since 2003, and with significantly reduced resources available for road safety, RoSPA’s 2013 Road Safety Seminar will examine the potential for new and emerging methods to deliver cost-effective road safety programmes'.

Abstracts of up to 500 words should be sent to Kevin Clinton, Head of Road Safety, RoSPA, RoSPA House, 28 Calthorpe Road, Birmingham, B15 1RP, or to kclinton@rospa.com by Friday, October 12 2012.
